I'm feeling so old! I'm almost 28, but I'm feeling I'm the oldest person alive. I think it's too late for me to restart. I don't know, I'm hopeless. I wish I could turn back the clock so bad! =(

Ever since I turned the big 2-0, I was wondering where my life went. It really hit me that my childhood and my teenage years went by way too fast. It is funny that the life expectancy has increased for a person, but yet when we are considered to be an adult has not been adjusted, despite having much longer lives. Of course, a couple hundred years ago, right now, my life would be half over. It still feels like it sometimes. I think what makes me feel old is whenever someone younger than me has a birthday, that I remember when they were infants or toddlers. It just hit me that one of my smaller cousins is going into the fifth grade. It just seems like yesterday that he was born. That really just makes me feel old like you would not believe. It does seem like the process of aging is speeding up. I feel old. Now if you excuse me, I need to go tell those pesky kids to get off my lawn and turn down that rock n roll.

Oh, please...I have shoes older than you are. Not really but I've always liked that saying. You are NOT old and it's never too late to start over. I'm 55. The last time I went back to college I was 35. I started a new career at 37...an entirely different one at 50 and last year my husband and I opened our own business. Your best days are not behind you...they are always ahead of you because the future is there for you to build.

You can find the reason and resolve it,if it's you are too tired please have a rest or go for a short trip,if it's your work you can think it over and maybe have another job.Sometimes we feel old just because there is too much time for us to think nonsence.Have a nice day dsrp!

i think i remember telling you that 28 isn't old. haha;-) well, time runs and never waits for us. i think you're saying you're old because there are things that you wish you did but didn't do, and now you think you're too old for them. is that it? there's no need for you to restart, what's important is you start NOW. you will never be too old for anything; all that's there is a choice whether to do something or not. get going now~ (^o^)/

What made you think that way? you are only 28 years young, that is still considered young adult. I am 26 years old yet I feel like I am a teenager..lol. Anyways, just enjoy the life you have now and make some changes to make it exciting.

I'm 22, but sometimes I wish to turn back the clock as well. Just remember it's never too late to restart, to find new dreams, new ways to fulfill your wishes. You just have to find in you the will to do it. I could tell you a lot of stories of people a lot older than you that completely restarted their life. You feel old because you're exhausted perhaps, but once you roll up your sleeves and start working on your life, everything will get better.

I´m SO sorry! Truly, to be 28 is having a ripe old age. I´m trying to remember how I felt then but when you are 65 you happily forget a lot of things. I think I felt quite old then. My eldest daugter was almost 10. She was also quite old. Now that I think about this, all is relative. And we can restart every day . So don´t worry.
